Fruits, vegetables, and adenomatous polyps: the Minnesota Cancer Prevention Research Unit case-control study

High intake of fruits and vegetables may help halt the transformation of colorectal polyps to cancerous tumors.

This study examined the role high dietary ingestion of fruits and vegetables play in preventing the progression of colorectal polyps to cancer. Researchers compared the diets of 564 individuals with polyps and 1,217 persons without polyps in their colon and rectum.

Researchers observed that the risk of colorectal polyps progressing to cancer was low among habitual consumers of fruits and vegetables. The results of this study affirm the protective effects of fruits and vegetables against colorectal cancer.
